Charging LiFePO4 battery from TV

I assume I need to disconnect the 12V wire from my tow vehicle so it doesn't drain the recently installed LiFePO4 battery in my Bambi? Either that or install a 12V to 14.6V converter of some sort.

A: you can leave the wire in the 7-pin, just unplug when you’re not on the road (just be sure to plug it back in before getting back on the road).

B : yes, if you want to ‘really’ charge while going down the road, something like a Victron DC-DC charger would work (the 12v 50 amp one is just coming out now).
